Good quiz bt as a frenchman i dont understand the lack of french data. I can give you at least a dozen cities that should be there according to the selection method... maybe citypopulation.de isn't that precise

That's weird, I just looked at the population of what looks like big french cities on Google Maps, to make sure that I hadn't missed anyone. I couldn't find any other cities than the ones Citypopulation gave me.

Maybe you could list them below?

Great quiz, but just a small aesthetic design flaw, the red text of Guernsey and Jersey and the shadow text is hard on the eyes against the blue backround.

Nice quiz! 2 suggestions - firstly Bognor Regis is almost always simply called "Bognor", and secondly only 5 (I think) of the English places are cities, so the title may want a little modification to "towns and cities" or even just "towns". Just slightly nitpicky suggestions as I say. Enjoyed it. Thank you!
